Instructions for authors

Thank you for choosing to submit your paper to the Journal of International Society for Data Science and Analytics (JISDSA). These instructions will ensure we have everything required so your paper can move through peer review, production and publication smoothly. Please take the time to read and follow them as closely as possible, as doing so will ensure your paper matches the journal's requirements. 

About the journal

JISDSA is an international, peer reviewed journal, publishing high-quality, original research. Please see the journal’s Aims & Scope for information about its focus and peer-review policy. Please note that this journal only publishes manuscripts in English.

Every paper accepted is freely published and open access online. The paper format of the journal is available for order.

Peer review

We are committed to peer-review integrity and upholding the highest standards of review. JISDSA adopts an open review process. We allow an author to recommend two potential guess editors and 5 potential reviewers who are familiar with the topic. An associate editor will make the final decision on selecting a guess editor, and the guess editor will then select at least two reviewers. A reviewer can choose to be anonymous or not and can elect to publish their review along the accepted paper. The guest editor then makes a recommendation on acceptance, revision & resubmission, or decline of the manuscript. The associate editor finally approves and concludes the review process. A manuscript is either declined and published after that. The review process is illustrated in the flow chart below.
